Finally after months and months Fiona the chicken has laid her first egg!
After getting her in May time we have not had a single egg from her! Therefore, when she got her new friends Ariel and Elivs we hoped them laying regularly would kick start her…And finally it did! Everyday this week we have had eggs from all the ladies!
Ariel is a Rhode Island Red hybrid so pretty regular and Elvis has the white eggs so its easy to see who has been laying. Fionas eggs were light cream and very long to begin with but now she is laying more the eggs are getting more similar in shape and colouring to Ariels eggs.
Anyho, here are a few photos of us (including Mr Podge the cat!) being very excited on discovery of the new egg for the first two days!
